Drug testing London

Drug testing London

AlphaBiolabs is able to test for the widest range of drugs and metabolites, including non-standard ones. Our drug testing options include urine, oral fluid (saliva), nail clippings and hair tests.

Urine and oral fluid tests give a short-term measure of drug use (usually a few days or weeks). As such, these testing methods are ideal for at-source testing to give an immediate indicative result. Nail clippings can provide up to a 6-month overview. Hair drug testing can also provide a history of drug abuse for a period of months and is routinely performed using either head or body hair samples.

Drug testing in London is used by a wide variety of customers including members of the public, the legal profession and businesses. For solicitors and social workers that need to provide evidence for a court case or monitor the progress of a client, the samples need to be collected by a professional and securely delivered to the testing laboratory following a strict set of procedures (known as chain of custody).

Businesses also regularly send their employees for drug testing. This could be part of a random drug testing programme, internal investigation or to check the progress of someone with a history of substance misuse. Some companies also use drug testing as part of the recruitment process, especially in the case of roles where safety is critical.

Easy sample collection

Drug testing in London is made easy thanks to flexible options for sample collection. We offer a secure, rapid and convenient service via our experienced network of highly qualified sample collectors. These sample collectors can visit a designated location (home, work or a solicitor’s office) to collect a sample under chain of custody procedures.

Alternatively, rather than having to arrange an appointment for sample collection, those needing to take advantage of drug testing can call into one of our two Walk in Centres* (based in Camden in North London and Clapham in South London) where you can take an instant drugs test or collect a kit to take home. And using this option can help reduce the total cost of testing.

Expert sample collectors at the Walk in Centres ensure that the process is carried out quickly, efficiently and with no risk of contamination. This is ideal for those instances when you need to be certain that the results of a drug test are completely accurate and that the sample has not been tampered with.
